If you take a look around, not a single frown can be found – and that goes for people and pups alike.  Grown ups are sipping their Tito’s Handmade Vodka cocktails (responsibly) while perusing tastefully eclectic dog portraits. Canine companions full of personality ignite a chain reaction of candid smiles. Between the woofs of varied volumes and plenty of wagging tails, this seems to be the perfect day.

This cinematic scene unfolded last weekend at the opening of Tito’s Handmade Vodka’s Vodka for Dog People’s newest project, the Impressions of Tito’s Distillery Dogs Over 25 Years art collection, housed (you guessed it) at the Long Center. The Austin-based vodka company (and LC sponsor) continued its slew of 25th anniversary events with an free public reception for the 25-piece collection, which pays homage to 25 dogs rescued near the Tito’s distillery, with each portrait depicting a dog’s unique story and legacy of resilience.

An important part of the Tito’s story is the innate connection the company has with its canine counterparts. Since the beginning (way back in the 90s), Tito’s has been committed to rescuing and protecting animals and, through its Vodka for Dog People program, has helped better the lives of pets and their families far and wide. To date, 121 dogs have been rescued outside the Tito’s distillery, including the 25 featured in the new art collection. Some of these lucky pups even attended the gallery opening!

Also onsite were representatives from Emancipet, a national organization working to increase access to affordable pet care, and Save an Angel, a national nonprofit that provides care to homeless and at-risk animals. In honor of Tito’s 25th Anniversary celebration, Tito’s Vodka for Dog People is donating $2,500 per organization.

Impressions of Tito’s Distillery Dogs will call the Long Center’s Rollins Lobby home through early January. Be sure to take a stroll through the gallery the next time you visit.
